I made a short stop at Sandy Point this morning, in hope that the sunrise would improve, but it didn’t get any better.
It’s just as easy to go to the Eastern Shore as anywhere else at that point, so I headed for Terrapin. I did manage one warbler, but I’m still not seeing any large numbers.
CBEC was next, and it wasn’t bad. I found out how badly you can get stuck in the mud if you venture too far out in the marsh wearing big boots.
Sunrise at Sandy Point.
Several Wood Ducks flew across the marsh ponds.
This Lesser Yellowlegs flew right in front of me as I was watching the Egrets.
This is my second Palm Warbler of the season.
Tree Swallows will often let you get very close.
Several Mallard s flew into the marsh pond at Terrapin.
This Chickadee, like most, ignored me as he was feeding.
Snowy Egrets are starting to appear in larger numbers.
This Brown Thrasher was the last bird I photographed this morning.
